A goal of Marji's is to photograph women in agriculture in all 50 states! In five years she has traveled to almost half of them while filming for the FarmHer show on RFD-TV that started back in September of 2016.
(If you are from a state that hasn't been visited yet, suggest a FarmHer here!)
For almost four years, the FarmHerd worked remotely. June 2017 the FarmHer team moved into an office in Urbandale, Iowa. This allows for better collaboration and communication among the team. Also as a bonus, the FarmHer products were able to be fulfilled in-house.
It was a cold rainy day in Iowa when Marji stepped foot on Lois Reichart's goat farm in Knoxville, Iowa. Dairy-Air Farm was the first of seven farms for a photo project titled 'FarmHer.' Little did Marji know, five years later FarmHer would be a national business and she would still be taking photos of women in agriculture all over the country.
There is a lot that happens behind the scenes of FarmHer. Everything from planning events to shipping out orders, this team makes it all happen. If you listen to the podcast episode titled 'Duo Cas on Branding' (here) you'll hear Marji and Lexi talk about the importance of building a good team. These ladies all work together to bring you the stories of women in agriculture from FarmHer.

....and counting! FarmHer celebrated its 5th anniversary this April and Marji counted up how many women that FarmHer has photographed and was humbled knowing the number was well over 200. These images tell the stories of the hard-working women and carry out the mission of FarmHer, shining a light of women in agriculture.

The last two years I have volunteered with FarmHer at the Iowa State Fair through Nationwide Agribusiness. This year I did sign up for two shifts through NW Ag during the fair, and then I retired from NW Ag the end of June so I am available for even more volunteer hours at the fair if you need me. I love working your booths. Please let me know what I can do to help this year!! Katie Bolinger

The busyness of holiday preparations, year-end closing of financial books, tax preparations, loan renewals and prepay of next year’s commodity inputs may have your snow globe resembling the topsy-turviness of a blizzard. Good health and wellbeing, including mental health, is a key factor that contributes to one’s ability to keep farming.
